3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle pours a reddish black color with a massive light brown head that retains very well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and red wine grapes with some herbal notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with some dryness from the red wine quality and a herbal bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation and alcohol is well hidden. A very well done brew for the style, very enjoyable.

Bottle at Gainsbar. Dark brown/black with big golden head. Aroma is very miso, bit of oats too. Taste much more oats, quite sweet, sugar, really nice. Nice and thick. Maybe bit of liquorice. Very nice. Bit of bitterness at end. A poor review as this was near the end of a long session, but I can still taste this in my mind, it was so nice.
